Ki ecobe - Customizable Self Assembled Footwear

$66,903

517

KI ecobe is a self-assembled modular shoe that uses no toxic adhesives. The end user assembles the shoe making the manufacturing process much less labor intensive. Choose your favorite colors and styles to make your unique shoe! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KI ecobe allows the consumer to express his or her character by selecting materials and colors and custom building their own shoe on our online store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through inovative design KI ecobe has eliminated the need for toxic adhesives. This provides a healthier, fume free working environment for factory workers.

 

The mix and match concept of KI ecobe will reduce the wasting of materials and environmental pollution which is caused by fast-fashion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Match you Ki ecobe's with your favorite sports teams!

 

 

Ki ecobe fits all types of feet including wide feet due to the form-fitting mesh inboots, the flexible outsole, and adjustable modular structure. We will send you a survey to let us know your specific size and color choices after the campaign.  If you are unsure of your size, use a ruler to measure the heel-to-toe length and refer to the size chart.

Risks and challenges

KI ecobe started from the question, “How can we make shoes that benefit both nature and people while eliminating the use of harmful adhesives?”

With good intentions to benefit nature and people together, we sought the answer to this question in various angles. There were many difficulties, but we found the recyclable green elastic material that has similar properties as rubber when injection molded. We also eliminated the difficulties in developing the mold for injection molding through outstanding engineers.

Getting the Ki strap to fit snug to the outsole for each size was no easy task. Also the problem of rough cut surfaces due to the laser cutting process for the uppers was resolved through a new cutting and processing technology.

Although there were many difficulties as the ones described above we overcame them. Shoes are one of the products that are difficult to develop due to the great variety of style, color, and size. Fortunately, however, we have already overcome these difficulties and have completed product development, secured production facilities and shipping channels, and expect few to no problems shipping them all over the world as soon as the funding is completed. The entire process of the campaign will be disclosed transparently, and we welcome all types of questions. We hope for passionate support from Kickstarter Backers.
